About Microneedling with PRP
Body+Beauty Lab is proud to offer microneedling using the DermaPen, a treatment that creates micro-injuries to the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin rejuvenation. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the treated area to help cells heal and permit the skin to begin growing new cells. Rather than traditional PRP, our medical spa uses a more efficient version known as PRF, which utilizes platelet-rich fibrin to encourage healthier skin. When paired together, both of these procedures can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and large pores along with other skin conditions. The feel of your skin may be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about the microneedling with PRP/PRF procedure, schedule a private consultation with one of our experienced aestheticians in Philadelphia, PA.
The perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP/PRF is any individual seeking to alter the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that may benefit from a microneedling with PRP or PRF therapy. This procedure can also be done to fight the effects of sun damage that could have resulted in your skin possessing a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.
Before the microneedling portion of your session begins, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your platelet-rich fibrin collection. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be turned into a PRF solution. For your microneedling therapy, Body+Beauty Lab employs the innovative DermaPen to make micro-sized holes into your skin. The little needles used won't harm your skin, rather, they will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is done, the PRP/PRF serum will be placed on the epidermis to sink in. Once the solution is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the excess and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you could encounter some typical side effects, like swelling, bruising, and redness. Our team suggests that clients refrain from using makeup, cleansing with exfoliating face washes, or swimming in pools for around three days following their session. Activities like these could expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals, which could potentially cause negative side effects. You also need to actively avoid exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Full results are usually noticed within the first month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling with PRP/PRF cost?
A treatment of microneedling and PRP/PRF will be priced, depending on the number and size of the areas receiving treatment. During the appointment to build your treatment plan, pricing will be discussed. Body+Beauty Lab frequently offers discounted packages of multiple treatments in addition to monthly specials.

How effective is microneedling with PRP/PRF treatments?
A microneedling with PRP/PRF treatment may not produce visible results immediately, but the healing factors from the platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) serum are meant to increase growth for a clearer, healthier complexion that improves over time. To achieve your ideal results, you should plan to receive multiple treatments at first, followed by touch-up appointments to maintain your results. Your aesthetician will discuss what you can realistically expect so you know what improvements to anticipate.
How many microneedling with PRP/PRF treatments should I get?
At the beginning of your treatment plan, you might prefer to have a few sessions performed every couple of weeks. Depending on the condition of your complexion and your goals, your aesthetician will create a treatment plan to rejuvenate the health of your skin. Between treatments, you can receive another skin treatment to exfoliate old skin and make way for new and healthy skin layers.
How often should I get microneedling with PRP/PRF treatments?
Following the initial series of treatments, you should get maintenance sessions 2 – 4 times every year. How often you need treatments will depend on your age and the health of your complexion, as well as your goals so our team can help determine your long-term plan. Your aesthetician will make suggestions regarding how frequently you should schedule microneedling with PRP/PRF maintenance treatments to ensure that your skin remains strong, radiant, and healthy.
Should I get microneedling with PRP/PRF or injectable wrinkle treatments?
While microneedling with PRP/PRF delivers long-term results, different treatments often produce faster improvements. Depending on your concerns, you may get microneedling with PRP/PRF by itself, or you might receive it with an injectable treatment, like BOTOX or a dermal filler. At your appointment, your technician will create a treatment plan to fit your needs and wants.
